You’ve Got Questions.

Tackling a new project or getting ready for a move can be overwhelming! You’re sure to have questions and are probably wondering where to get started. Have a look at these Frequently Asked Questions, and if you’re wondering about anything not mentioned here or want to reach out for help…we’re here for you.

 

How many hours do you work at a time?

I work a minimum of three hours and we can schedule longer periods of time if you would like.

 

What kind of training do you have?

I’m an active member of the Professional Organizers in Canada (POC) and have taken training on Ethics and Safety through them. You can check out their website at https://www.organizersincanada.com/ 

I’ll be taking the National Association of Senior Move Managers course in the near future. You can check out their website at https://www.nasmm.org/

I’ve learned from my own life experiences and transitions, while also learning a lot from every client I meet. Everyone has a different situation and background, and so I like to take a flexible approach to helping people, based on what they’re looking for.

 

How long have you been in business?

I started Clear My Clutter in the fall of 2017 after deciding to focus on helping people downsize, declutter and get ready for moving. I’ve been passionate about organizing and project planning since I was a kid. Before Clear My Clutter, I started Harmony is Home back in 2014, a non-medical senior care company.

 

Tell me more about your Free Consultation

During a consultation we’ll get the chance to meet each other and I can see your space. I’ll be asking you a bunch of questions such as what kind of help you’re looking for, when you would like to get started and when you would like to finish. A consultation usually takes about 45 minutes and if you would like to work together, then I’ll ask you to sign a Client Agreement. The Client Agreement outlines my Cancellation Policy and will ask if you’re ok with me taking before & after pictures of your space.

 

What is your Cancellation Policy?

I ask for 48 hours to cancel a scheduled appointment, otherwise you will be charged 50% of the scheduled cost. This is because my business is entirely time based and last minute cancellations mean that I can’t earn enough money to make a living.

$55/hour + HST (with a 3 hour minimum) for anyone living up to 20 minutes from Collingwood.  This includes Thornbury, Craigleith, Blue Mountain, Collingwood, Stayner, Nottawa, and the western part of Wasaga Beach).

Want me to pick up moving packing supplies, organizing bins or make deliveries to local consignment stores? Sure thing as long as what I’m picking up will fit in my Honda Fit hatchback. Luckily it can hold an amazing amount of stuff. I charge $40/hour + HST for picking up supplies or dropping things off, and there is a one hour minimum charge for this service.

 

What can I expect while working with Clear My Clutter?

You can expect us to show up on time, listen to your needs, and we’ll make suggestions based on what you’re looking for. We will give you our full attention and will work hard to help you make efficient and effective progress.  We like to start wrapping up our session 15 minutes before the end of your time, so that we have enough time to leave your place looking in good shape, review anything you may want to work on in between sessions, and set our next date if it hasn’t already been scheduled.
